A dream come true!
River Forest Manor and Marina is stunning and dreamy all on its own! Working with them made it that much better, they are truly incredible and made our wedding day a dream come true! Montana who I worked closely with, took customer service to an entirely different level, she is a treasure and this place is EVERYTHING you could ever dream of and more!Sent on 07/10/2019

The manor was absolutely perfect! I could not have been more please with the venue that I chose! I had so many compliments, not only from attendees but also from strangers and people who had passed by the manor on the day of the wedding on how pretty everything looked and how gorgeous the manor was! Also, Montana was simply amazing! She answered all of my questions quickly, she gave advice, and she even helped out at my bridal portraits even though she didn’t have to! She was one of the awesome people that helped the wedding planning and day of go so smoothly. So very please and appreciative!Sent on 08/01/2018
